Canada Immigration and Province

Canada has become the attraction for immigrants looking for a

host Country to provide them good opportunities. Every year
thousands of immigrants make Canada their new home and
Canada is always welcoming them to make the countrys
economy stronger. Because high numbers of immigrants, many
provinces developed in the desired way because the immigration
provided them employees and workers with necessary skills. As
result of high amount of public the demand for the products also
increased which gave push to manufacturing companies.
According to statistics of 2015, Most of the immigrants landed in
Canada selected Ontario as their destination. The number of
permeant residential immigrants was 2,71,660 approximately. The
numbers were higher than past year by 4.4%. 73% of the
immigrants selected to live in three main provinces of Canada
which are:

Alberta; 24%

Ontario; 52%

Quebec; 24%

In the same year, provinces Prince Edward Island, Saskatchewan

and New Brunswick received the highest number of economic
immigrants. Where Newfoundland had the highest number of
immigrants in refugee category.
But the attraction of Ontario is not same as it was for immigrants
according to some news because Canadian government changed
some rules and policies for immigrants. People came to Ontario to
get higher pay and better job and in return they developed the
economy of the province. But now it is not same as it was before.
Many people have changed the province for other provinces.
Ontario once had the 60% of immigrants which is near the half of
the ratio now. Ontario is facing net out-migration each year. The
reason for these kinds of policies making people to move to
another province is to improve the economy of other province
such as Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Alberta and many other
provinces and territories.
Saskatchewan was also having the good number of immigrants
and it increased the population of the province with boost. But,
because of weak commodity prices it caused many companies to
shut down the factories, making workers to move to another
Some provinces are looking to increase their wages so that they
can attract more and more immigrants to their province.

Which Province needs more immigrants:

There are many provinces in Canada, who are forcing Canadian
government to increase the immigration quota for there state.
The provinces, British Columbia, Nova Scotia and Atlantic
provinces like New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador are
few of them. Even the most developed province of Canada,
Ontario is also looking for some skilled workers for development
and improvement of other sectors. Quebec is also looking for
French speaking immigrants to maintain the balance between
English speaking population.
The beginning of immigration in Canada
Canada was having few numbers of people in the beginning. But
after the confederation in 1867, the population is increasing every
single year. History of Canada is complex. As a new world country,
Canada have provided very wide society for immigrations and it is
proven to be the main reason for the growth of the Country.
The immigration in this country is not new. History of
immigrations started back thousands of years. But Statistic
Canada started the calculation of population back in 1851. They
used 10 years gap to calculate the difference but later the gap
was reduced to 5 years to see the immigration effects in different
provinces. The first act related to immigration was released by
Britain in 1828 during the great migration of Canada. The act
regulated the number of passenger who could go to ship and
controlled the seat allocated to them. The act is now known as
the foundation of British colonial emigration legislation.
There are five wave of Canadas immigration. In the first wave of
migration settlement of French in Quebec done between 1780 and
1812. The second wave took place
after the war of 1812 and had the
British solders who fought in the war.
Also, there was in increment Irish
immigration in the same wave. The
third wave took place between 1900
and 1914 when most of the
immigration came from Europe. The
fourth wave also came from Europe
after the world war 2 in 1957. The
Fifth wave (1975 to present) took
place when the act regarding
immigration was redefined in 1976.
